2021 is now in full swing. But has much changed? Unfortunately, the world continues to contend with the coronavirus pandemic, as cases seem to be rising. It’s important to remember that while it is necessary for us all to do our part to stop the spread of the virus, seniors are particularly at risk. The ill health effects associated with COVID-19 are significantly more dangerous for older adults. So what can be done to ensure the continued health of seniors as the pandemic rages on?
Welcome to 2021! The Advantage Home Health Solutions team would like to wish you a very happy and healthy new year. Here’s hoping it’s one that will end without having us all enduring a pandemic.
The Advantage Home Health Solutions team hopes you had a very Merry Christmas! Of course, we also hope that you have a very Happy New Year as well! There are only two days left in 2020. And, for most people, that’s two days too many. 2020 has been a year of many hardships. Of course, the coronavirus pandemic has significantly changed the ways in which we live our lives.
On behalf of everyone here, at Advantage Home Health Solutions, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! We know, of course, that this year’s Christmas celebrations are bound to be a lot different than the ones you’re used to. COVID-19 has made it so that we all must be cautious about gathering in large groups. Smaller celebrations are recommended to help stop the spread of the virus.
Making sure your elderly loved ones are kept safe is a year-round requirement. This is especially true when they’re using the bathroom. Are the bathrooms in your home injury-proof? What can you do to make them safer than ever this holiday season?
Christmas is a little over two weeks away! Undoubtedly, the next couple of weeks will be among the busiest for Canadian retailers. Even as we continue to contend with the coronavirus pandemic, shoppers remain on the hunt to find their loved ones the perfect holiday gifts. The task isn’t so easy when it comes to the seniors in our lives, is it? What would make the perfect gift for your elderly mom and/or dad? We have a few ideas!
Do you find yourself struggling to get out of your seat? Does rising from a seated position cause you any pain? How convenient would it be for you to go from sitting to standing with a touch of a button? If you experience difficulty in getting out of a chair, a power lift chair is definitely for you!
With just the touch of a button, a power lift chair will raise or lower. This incredible mobility solution is known for helping people to reduce their back pain, sit more comfortably and avoid injury when trying to stand up. Power lift chairs are also very comfortable power recliners. Many recline all the way back to a sleep-ready position. Other models offer additional recline positions to increase circulation and provide additional health benefits like heat and massage.
The cold, in addition to the snow on the ground, is a reminder that getting around won’t be as easy as it was during the warmer months of the year. This is especially true, of course, for wheelchair users.
This holiday season, there’s a uniquely special gift that many elderly individuals likely have on their wish lists – your time. Because of the pandemic, many people have been isolated from their extended families. This has been particularly difficult on seniors. Especially if they battle with mobility issues, older adults may already be suffering emotionally. A lack of independence makes being lonely a very hard thing to deal with.
On behalf of the entire Advantage Home Health Solutions team, we would like to offer our deepest respect to all those who are and have been members of the Canadian Armed Forces. With Remembrance Day today, we are particularly mindful to pay tribute to those who have given their lives to protect our nation.
No one likes being cold. But for older adults, frigid temperatures can exacerbate or even bring on unwanted health concerns. Seniors tend to lose body heat quicker than their younger counterparts. This is especially true for those who battle with such conditions as diabetes or thyroid problems, alerts Companions For Seniors.
